  • "We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at East cottage."

    On our arrival there was a lovely welcome pack waiting for us which was much appreciated, including milk which we’d forgotten to bring. The cottage is warm and cosy with lovely views across the countryside and the private back garden ideal for our dog where she could have a run about. Our children loved the pool which was big, very well maintained, had a shower, changing facilities and a toilet. We will be back for sure, thanks to the property owners for such an enjoyable stay.

  • "Wonderful stay from start to finish."

    We were welcomed like family - there were even gifts left out for us. The pool is absolutely amazing, we spent some time there every day. Great place for families or couples and we will definitely return! Highly recommended

  • "Lovely area, and the grounds are well maintained."

    It has a lovely pool to use. Owners were really lovely. But unfortunately I think our apartment was the only one not recently redecorated and the decor was tired, not very clean or comfortable. I believe the owners were going to address this. A few changes would make a big difference. Sykes cottages were very helpful.

  • "This is our second stay , this time with new owners, very friendly, always on hand when needed."

  • "Hartswood east is a wonderful place to stay just far enough off the main road to feel secluded but close to lots of interesting places."

    The accommodation was exceptionally clean and very well appointed. Just need to be careful to not bang your head in the bedrooms as the ceilings are very quirky. Our apartment led straight down to a lovely swimming pool which was an added bonus. This place has only just been taken over by new owners so we were asked for any suggestions for improvements which was nice .. eugene was very attentive when we arrived but didn’t see him for the rest of the week didn’t meet Lucy although she sounded very nice on the phone .. Would highly recommend to anyone who wishes to have a relaxing holiday with a homely feel .

Hartswood Farm Cottages

Malton 8 miles. Situated near the small hamlet of East Knapton, surrounded by open, working countryside, these four properties, including two lovely apartments, a ground-floor open plan barn conversion, and a delightful wing of a former farmstead are set within the owner’s large property and grounds. Ideally located, these Malton cottages are close to many attractions in the area, including stately homes, gardens and the seaside towns of Filey and Scarborough. Both of the apartments provide inviting first-floor accommodation, with bright and comfortable sitting rooms and modern bathrooms and kitchens, whilst the former farmstead cottage boasts period features, such as beamed ceilings, parquet floors, original fireplaces and a woodburning stove. The ground-floor open-plan cowshed is a lovely romantic retreat, with all you need in one place beneath delightful exposed beams, with views of the ponies and goats in the fields to wake up to. Tastefully furnished and decorated, these four properties near Malton have shared access to a fabulous heated indoor swimming pool with a Jacuzzi, changing rooms and comfortable seating. Outside the two apartments each enjoy their own private patio, the cowshed has a lovely fenced seating area, whilst all four holiday homes have access to communal lawns, with rural views towards Dalby Forest and the Vale of Pickering. The pretty market town of Malton offers a cobbled market square, independent shops and an array of tea rooms and pubs, whilst nearby Pickering has a castle, museums and is the terminus of the North Yorkshire Moors Railway; well worth a nostalgic trip through spectacular moorland scenery. For the more energetic, Dalby Forest offers biking and walking trails, with its Go Ape activity centre and bike hire. Why not enjoy a visit to nearby Scampston House and its beautiful gardens, or have a fun-filled day at Flamingo Land theme park? With something for everyone in this beautiful area, these three holiday homes near Malton will appeal to all the family.

Rillington is a small village and civil parish located on the A64 road in North Yorkshire, with easy links to the historical city of York and the bustling coastal town of Scarborough. Rillington was mentioned in the 1086 Domesday Survey and is now home to a Post Office, two pubs, The Coach and Horses and The Fleece, and a church. The rural community was developed many years ago due to the presence of fertile soil and the village is still home to an active farming community. Nearby attractions include the Scampton Walled Garden, a contemporary garden open for visitors throughout the year, and the Wolds Way Lavender, a lavender farm and visitor centre. Further afield into the city of York, you can discover the incredible York Minster and grand city walls. Heading towards the coast, the seaside towns of Filey and Scarborough offer a good selection of shops, pubs, restaurants and cafés, as well as gorgeous promenades, water sports and golden sandy beaches.
